Gary Shaw has a tripleheader card lined up for HBO Boxing After Dark on October 27 from the Turning Stone Casino in Verona, New York, with Puerto Rican welterweight prospect Thomas Dulorme in the main event, as well as a world title fight in the lightweight division.
"I am very grateful to Gary Shaw for giving me the opportunity to be fighting on HBO for the first time. This is what every fighter dreams and I am extremely excited to showcase my skills on an international platform."
"Abregu is a good fighter and I know this is a tough fight, so I am preparing thoroughly to be in the best possible shape for fight night. My trainer Bonilla and I have been working hard in the gym and we want to dedicate this victory to the people of Puerto Rico. I will fight hard to not disappoint my fellow Puerto Ricans and the entire Latin community."

"Thomas Dulorme is one the most exciting and promising young fighters in all of boxing and on October 27th he will prove it against Abregu live on HBO."

"We're happy and excited for this opportunity. Dulorme will show the world what he is made of and we are confident that Dulorme will beat Abreu and become a world champ soon."
"Dulorme has never been in the ring with a hard puncher like me. I will break him down with power shots, something he's never experienced before. A win against Dulorme will put me back on track to fight for a world title. Nothing is going to stop me from coming out victorious."
"My golden opportunity has finally arrived and I'm not going to let it pass me by. I've waited a long time for this opportunity to fight on HBO and I earned everything the hard way, by winning in the ring. Come fight night, Herrera better be ready for a war, because I'm coming out guns blazing."
"Mayfield is a good fighter, but I believe I have better boxing skills then he does. I've faced the better competition and my experience will guide me to victory. I'll be ready for anything Mayfield brings to the ring."
"I believe I'm the best lightweight champion in the world. My only losses have come against the best fighters in the world in higher weight classes. I'm unstoppable at lightweight and Quintero will realize who the real champion is when we face each other on October 27th."
"As a fighter you always dream of becoming a world champion and my time has come to show the world that I'm for real. Vasquez is a great champion, but come fight night, I'm going to take his title and end his reign as IBF Champion."
"I want to thank HBO, the Turning Stone Resort Casino, and all the promoters who've united to make this event a reality. The card is stacked from top to bottom as the undercard will showcase some of the best young prospects in boxing. We will announce those fights soon. Everyone should tune into HBO on October 27th, because this is going to be an explosive night of boxing."
